The apex court seeks a response from CBI and Bihar government regarding the arrest of Chandra Shekhar Verma

The Supreme Court lambasted the Bihar government for their inaction on the Muzaffarpur shelter home case on Thursday, while going through the status report filed by the CBI. The court said that it revealed “shocking, horrible and scary” details of how the crime was committed.

A show cause notice was issued to prime accused Brajesh Thakur, seeking his reply as to why he should not be shifted out of jail in Bihar to jail in some other state.

The apex court also asked the Bihar government and CBI to file a response as to why Chandra Shekhar Verma, the husband of former Bihar minister Manju Verma, had not been arrested yet.
